Presencia Animal Plan 100 English Presencia Animal Plan 100 English Presentation Transcript

  • P L A N The following presentation contains explicit material. Discretion is advised.
  • Did you know that… In Mexico there are more than 8 million homeless dogs In Mexico City there are around 128,000 dogs on the streets and that every year 14,000 dead dogs are thrown into the trash Homeless dogs are taken by the “perreras”, who lock them up for a few days before brutally killing them through electrocution. Some dogs requiring more than one electroshock to die.
  • How can we be so indiferent? A dog on the street is exposed to… Hunger and malnutrition Cold and heat Neglect and abuse Loneliness and sadness Constant danger of being hit by a vehicle
  • Why is a dog that once had an owner abandoned in the streets?  The most frequent reasons are: • I don´t have time to care for it anymore. • It costs too much. • I´m having a baby and I´m concerned it will become a problem. • I´m tired of having it. We forget that a dog is a LIVING BEING, not an object, not a wild animal.
  • The sad experience of PA includes rescuing dogs that once had an owner from places such as the highway or trash areas, where they have been left deliberately to die.  This doesn't include the number of dogs that have had the misfortune of being born in the streets and that have been found: • Beaten • Burned • With permanent injuries as a consequence of abuse (like missing an eye or other type of injuries) • With severe malnutrition and/or severe illnesses that cause slow and painful deaths . . . among other distressing conditions.
  • Let us not underestimate the power of ONE… Not so long ago, a little girl in Alabama wanted to go to the same school as everyone else… And a gentle man from India, Those of us who are part of wanted to raise Presencial Animal believe that it is consciousness without raising possible to provide better lives to his voice… our homeless dogs… In East Germany a man wanted to break free… … helping one dog at a time and promoting change in our And a woman travelled the communities. world giving hope to those who had none… This is the power of one. The power to do something. Anything.
  • Who is Presencia Animal (PA)? Presencia Animal (PA)  Presencia Animal (PA) is a group devoted to the rescue and care of street dogs. It was established and works purely out of love for animals and with the purpose of promoting a culture of respect for them in Mexico.  PA owes its existence and current work to the vision and efforts of 5 women (founders, active participants, and volunteers). The team has four employees, all of whom receive a salary and other benefits: 1 veterinarian, 1 veterinary assistant, and 2 people for maintenance.  The PA team initiated its pro-animal volunteer work as part of other organizations such as the Animal Defense League, which no longer actively works in Mexico. Later on, they became part of “Presencia Animal,” which was led by Mrs. Bertha Pitashny (R.I.P.), and then adopted the name to continue with the work in 1998.
  • What does PA do? PA´s team focuses on: 1 2 3 Shelter management Promoting adoption of Rescuing street dogs where rescued dogs the dogs in our shelter that are abandoned and receive the best care by people who will give in danger while they wait to be them the life they adopted deserve 4 5 Promoting a culture of Helping rural comunities love and respect for care for their dogs animals through food and basic care 6 7 Spaying/Neutering Fund-raising to support Campaigns in rural areas our activities
  • Thanks to the hard work of our team and support of our donors, we have achieved many happy endings Some of our results…  The PA team has rescued more than 2,000 dogs and cats (approximately 80% dogs and 20% cats).  Full capacity of rescued dogs at our shelter and several other under our protection awaiting for place in it.  Additionally PA provides support to people of limited resources to help them feed and care for their dogs through its Program “Help the Community”.  In September 2008 PA had the privilege of being evaluated and selected by Pedigree as a shelter to be supported with Pedigree food.
  • PA fights to help them heal physically and emotionally, and help them find their way to a loving home. Meet Willy  Willy is a yellow lab that “lived” with a man only a few blocks away from the PA shelter. This man lent him to dog-fighting rings so that pitbulls and other fighting dogs “could practice on him.” Being a noble and defenseless dog, he constantly experienced brutal and mortal attacks without any type of veterinary attention, care, or—evidently—love from his “owner.”  One day, PA members found Willy dying on the street in front of his house and took him. Willy went through a very long recovery process, but thanks to the adequate veterinary care, food, protection, and love he received, he recovered only a few feet away from the place where he lived his terrible puppyhood and youth.
  • For every dog that we rescue and gets adopted, we make room for another one in need. Willy today  His life changed from hell to heaven. Today Willy is the owner and master of a huge garden, and lives with a beautiful family that adopted him and adores him, and which he makes immensely happy by his presence. He finally has the life he deserves.
  • One of our main efforts is spaying and neutering to avoid overpopulation 1 dog 5,432 A female dog that is not spayed can cause the birth of 5,432 puppies in 7 years. And 1,000 dogs can cause 5 million. GEOMETRIC PROGRESS OF 10 dogs REPRODUCTION 54,320 YEAR DOGS 1st 8 2nd 16 3rd 48 100 dogs 4th 134 543,200 5th 402 6th 1,206 7th 3,618 Total 5,432 1000 dogs 5,432,000
  • Spaying and Neutering Campaigns in Rural Areas  The spaying and neutering campaigns are crucial because they prevent the birth of animals that will never receive the care they need, that are born destined to loneliness and suffering, and that will exponentially increase the population of street dogs and cats throughout their lives.  In addition to the spaying/neutering procedure, the animals get dewormed and receive anti-tick treatments.  During the campaigns, when very ill or injured dogs are found, PA takes them for treatment and later to be put up for adoption. PA´s spaying and neutering campaigns are held at no cost for the people in rural areas who live in extreme poverty.
  • Spaying and Neutering Campaigns in Rural Areas  PA has the capacity to perform approximately 70 spayings/neuterings in the two days that each campaign lasts.  Each campaign requires the participation of 2 veterinarians, 1 veterinary assistant, 1 van, 1 mobile operating theater, medicines, and medical supplies, the average cost of which is US $20 per animal.  Campaigns are currently held only once a month because of limited resources.  However, with more resources, PA could carry out: • More than one campaign per month • More spayings/neuterings per campaign in each rural area To date, PA has held 10 campaigns and in each of them has spayed/neutered an average of 60 animals (dogs and cats) in the cities of Puebla and Estado de México.
  • We work hard to achieve our mission, but our resources are limited… In PA we invest aproximately US $700 per dog in rescue, care and adoption process expenses in an average period of 3 months. Rescue Care Adoption • General evaluation • Feeding • Processing of Activities • Vaccinations • Care (salaries and adoption requests • Internal deworming benefits of doctor and • Verification process • External deworming employees) of applicants • Delivery of dog • Spaying/Neutering • Shelter (rent, utilities, • Follow-up • Feeding and maintenance of the shelter) Investment • US $ 300 per dog • US $ 100 per dog • US $80 per dog (monthly) • This cost does not consider surgery, special treatments or circumstances. PA does not receive contributions from the government or private companies. Its work is possible thanks to the generosity of individuals.
  • How are donations used by PA? PA subsists thanks to the monthly contributions of generous individuals. The donations are used for the following:  Rescues  Veterinary care (medicines, treatments, surgeries)  Spaying and neutering of rescued dogs  The “Help the Community” program  Spaying and neutering campaigns in rural areas  Operating expenses such as electricity, water, telephone, salaries of the four employees, printing of publicity, etc.
  • ... You can be part of this effort PLAN 100: 100 donors, 100 dollars  We are creating a team of 100 donors called “Plan 100” that can help us with US $100 per person, annually.  This amount is not a lot by itself, but when added to other donations, will allow us to continue supporting more dogs and maintain PA´s operation. Your donation is tax deductible in the US
  • Be the difference that makes the difference… If you are willing to help us by becoming a member of this plan, we will keep you informed about the use of the money through the following:  A bi-monthly report of the general expenses of the shelter and dogs rescued  An invitation to a yearly visit of the “Plan 100” members to see for themselves the use of resources and the activities.  A monthly e-bulletin with news about our rescues, adoptions, campaigns, and activities.
